My story

[p]I, together with some friends, am embarking on the task of cycling 200 miles from London to Paris in 24 hours. This is my 3rd time, but as I found out last year, it doesn’t get any easier, as I am not really a cyclist as such, I train for this on event, then hang up my bike for the rest of the year![/p][p]We are doing this challenge to raise money for children who have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), which is the most common fatal genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. The disease almost always affects boys, and they tend to be diagnosed before the age of 5. [/p][p]Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is classified as a rare disease, and there are around 2,500 patients in the UK and an estimated 300,000 worldwide.[/p][p]Children born with DMD have a fault, known as a mutation, on their dystrophin gene, the longest gene in the body. The fault means that they cannot produce dystrophin, a protein that is vital for muscle strength and function. This lack of dystrophin results in a progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function.[/p][p]Please help raise as much money as possible for this truely amazing cause, and help to change people’s lives.[/p]
